About Me

She secured me a listing where there were five other offers! I won the bid even though my condo was on a contingency off er. Without her, I would not have gotten the home in my dream location of Capitol Hill. She is also willing to work with another agent who uses sign language that does not currently have a license in DC, but they worked together to ensure I fully understood the entire process. I was so pleased with the outcome of everything in a short amount of time. They are such a great team! I would use them again in the future.

Joan is so good that we have used here twice, she sold a home for us in DC and helped us buy one. Great DC knowledge, av ailability and honest. We could not have asked for a better partner.

My daughter knows Joan professionally and when I stated I needed a realtor, there was no hesitation in my daughter’s r ecommendation for Joan. I purchased a residence sight unseen, I trusted Joan to use her judgment and great people skills to navigate an uncomfortable transaction. Everything turned out great I’d choose Joan again. We had a hurdle trying to assuage the management in my new residence. This particular management partner I assume was mistreated by another realtor and was rather difficult at the beginning. Joan won her over . It is important to me that management sees me in good favor . Joan was available to me by phone, text, and email. I was comforted by her accessibility and I felt safe Thanks Joan

Joan was fantastic and I would definitely work with her again. A three things that make Joan stand out are: - Her thorou ghness. We screened over 30 properties to find the right property that met our requirements. - Her attention to detail. We had made an offer on a house we loved, but Joan realized that the property had run afoul of DC regulations. We never would have found that without her help, and she kept us from making a significant mistake. - Her professionalism. Joan was a pleasure to work with, communicated with us around the clock and over holidays, and offered sound professional advice at the time of negotiation. I highly recommend working with Joan for your next house.

Rental buyer, Washington, D.C.
We had a great experience working with Joan overall. She taught me a ton about the market, and the whole process was act ually fun. Joan is also very good at digging below the surface. At one house we looked at, she discovered a number of code violations by the Seller about which they were lying to us. She is a good detective as well as a broker! Joan also tells it how it is, as do her inspectors and all the other parties she brings to the table. She is not going to sugar coat anything, which was very important to us.

N Driscoll. Washington. DC
Joan was our agent when we bought the property nine years ago and helped us find a great place. We have kept in touch o ver the years, and she helped many of our friends in the interim. As soon as we decided to sell, Joan was our first call. Our apartment needed a little bit of touch-up work before we put it on the market. I am in the Navy and live in San Diego, so I couldn't oversee the work from here. Joan located a contractor, set up the work schedule, and ensured that the job was completed as scheduled. The contractors did an outstanding job, which I have no doubt enhanced the value of our apartment. In addition to the physical work done on the apartment, Joan also worked closely with a stager to make the place look great prior to the sale. Simply put, the place would not have looked as great without Joan. I felt like we were Joan's only clients. As a seller, I couldn't ask for anything more. She is a great agent and person. I have been recommending Joan to friends in the DC area since 2008. Her outstanding performance this time around simply reaffirmed my confidence in her.

Our daughter Deborah . . . my wife and I (Daniela and Don) are the people actually buying the property - Deb helped with closing etc . . . . . . knows Joan from previous dealings with her (including buying her present home). So, we were comfortable right off working with her. Joan was professional and "on it" when it came to dealing with all the delays and addendum/changes as things went along. Happy with Joan.

Annessa Cass, Silver Spring
Joan was great throughout the entire buying practice. She understood what I didn't understand and clearly articulated wh at would get me to a level of comfort with a particular issue. That being said, she also understood when I did understand something and didn't bother explaining something to me and wasting my time. She was always very available, even showing me several houses on her birthday. All of this made my first home purchase a great and successful experience.

We felt prioritized by Joan and were able to trust that she was attentive to all the closing details.

Kevin and Anna
I knew Joan as an acquaintance prior to hiring her, and a mutual friend recommended her as thorough and knowledgeable. J oan was fantastic. She had great ideas and explained all her reasons. She gave us excellent advice on preparing our house for sale, and dealing with tenants, and it worked! She was available, attentive, helpful, funny, and just all around wonderful. We loved working with her. Nothing to improve. Joan was terrific. A friend of mine went to the open house as a "spy" and told me she thought Joan was terrific at the open house - friendly and attentive and knowledgeable with prospective buyers.

She did an outstanding job. Joan Carmichael went above and beyond to help me during the entire process, including conduc ting personalized research to find a place that met my very specific needs, making recommendation for another loan officer and an alternative insurance agency when I had encountered difficulties with the initial loan officer and the initial insurance provider I selected. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the market, accessibility, and her flexibility. She was able to accommodate to my very busy schedule and work with me primarily on the weekends and late evenings. She gave me great recommendations and tips during the negotiations process and helped me secure my dream place in a seller's market. I would highly recommend Joan Carmichael to anyone who is looking for a place in the DC area.

Joan handled a unique and, at times, frustrating buyer in stride. She thoroughly followed up with the buyer's agent nume rous times to be certain the contract was performed on schedule. I hope to use Joan as an agent again the in future.

Kevin Danielson, Chevy Chase
My already knowing & respecting Joan, her professionalism, the fact that she has a long history of experience in the DC area, & her straightforward manner were the big reason(s) we contacted her. My fiance had not met her before our house search, but he appreciated all those things about her immediately as well, & he told me so after the first time all 3 of us met. We knew Joan was gracious, detail-oriented, & professional in dealing w/ us, & in the process of buying a home w/ her, we got to see how much other people (sellers' agents, inspectors, lenders) appreciated those things about her as well, & that she is in fact known for them. It made a difference in all aspects of our house search, & we are very grateful. I cannot praise Joan's work enough. I would definitely work w/ her again, & I would recommend her highly to any friends/family who are looking for a home in the area.

This is the second time we have purchased a home with Joan on Capitol Hill. Her dedication to her clients no no bounds. And she is thoughtful with a keen eye for detail. I trust her immensely and value her advice. She knows Capitol Hill, the D.C. real estate market, and is incredibly savvy.
